just wondering where there is good public waterfowl hunting in PA. Alot of the local farmers are not too keen or have had bad experiences with hunters in the past. but man those corn fields are filled wth geese.

I am statoned at FIG to assist them with their new Stryker Brigade.

the ticket, I suggest... is to hang out in the local cafe's where those very same farmers congregate.. show some respect for their toil, some admiration of their land.. you'll get an opportunity.. don't rush it..

most land owners don't like show offs, and hot shots that want to come around and blow the place to smithereens.. but if you tread lightly, and act respectfully, they will open up to you.. don't rush it..

be grateful and share your bag.. you'll be welcome to return..

Have you tried looking into Middle Creek? Here is the link to the PGC website. Includes contact information.

Middle Creek (http://www.pagameandfish.com/hunting/ducks-geese-hunting/pa_aa124404a/index1.html)

Never hunter there personally I hunt the Susquehanna (around Harrisburg) and on the Easter Shore of MD but I've heard some good things about Middle Creek.
